Hi Ladies,

I'm very new here, this is my first post. I decided that whining to you is much cheaper than peeing on a stick twice a day...

So I used to have quite irregular periods, and then I went on BCP about 10 years ago. I have a 2.5 year old daughter and being an obsessive planner that I am, I decided to try and have a boy now. Got off the BCP around April and since then my AF has sort of stabilized, I guess. I forgot how freakin' painful my AF was when not on the pill. Anyway, I had my last @ on 8/13 and then I used OPK to try and BD on the ovulation day. I'm pretty sure it was 8/31, so 15 days ago.

I've been really sleepy and tired (I'm naturally lazy though so who knows if it can be considered a symptom) and lightheaded and very 'aware' of my boobs. I remember in first pregnancy my boobs were killing me, as in howl in pain. This time they're kind of tingly, or just letting me know they're here :) Like I said, the 4 AFs that came since I got off the pill I was in a lot of pain and very bloated. Not sure if my @ is delayed because of stress (but according to all the info I found online, @ should come 12-14 days after ovulation, it's the ovulation that can get delayed, correct?). Now that I think about it, the OPK was very faint, btu the EWCM came next day.

Anyway, I am stressing so much - I have been informed that I will most likely be getting a huge promotion in like a month, so if I'm not preggers now, I don't think I will try next month. I don't want to seem like I got preggers as soon as I was promoted, you know?

I am getting blood test today... but what if there's no hCG in it yet? My first pregnancy took forever to show on a urine test.

Ugh I hate the wait.

Please say something to make me feel better and/or distract me.

Welcome aboard spice girl! Sorry you're feeling like a big ol' hot stressed out mess...welcome to the wonderful roller coaster of ttc! Sounds to me like you probably O'd later than you thought. A faint opk isn't positive & even once you get a + opk O usually happens 12-48 hours later. Getting the ewcm the next day is a good sign but not a guarantee of O.

If af does come & you put ttc on hold, you could try bbt temping & see if you O on a regular day & then when you're ready to try again, you can bd closer to O to help your quest for a boy.

Good luck! Keep us updated :)
